In collaboration with Miami's own Locust Projects, Untitled Art hosts a closing party with live music brought to you by the BLCK Family.
Join the BLCK Family in celebrating the final hours of the seventh edition of Untitled Art, Miami Beach. Today’s party will feature a special performance featuring dance, language and music with tap dancer Cartier Williams, poet Aja Monet, and pianist Samora Pinderhughes.
Using the Visual, Auditory and Emotive of the Ocean as a foundation, the tryptic elements will exist in a detached formation, challenging the viewers attention to each segment while reframing the narrative around collaboration.
In proper celebratory form, as this is the closing program for the fair, the performance will be followed by Miami based DJ, Spinelli. Dancing, sweating, electric sliding encouraged.
